Re: acroread does not open in F26

I extracted all the libs. For the lazy here a link to all the libs you need to put in /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib

Re: acroread does not open in F26

OK, this is weird: On my home machine which I just upgraded to F26 from F25, I didn't need the fix from post #16. I tried running Acrobat Reader before making the changes, and it worked perfectly, including printing:



I suspect that in the time since F26 was released, maybe some GTK+ or other library was updated that fixed the problem. Regardless, I'm happy that on my home F26 system Acrobat Reader runs just like before in F25, without any hacks. Yay!

Re: acroread does not open in F26

With the help of the environment variable
export ACRO_PRINT_DEBUG=1
it was easy to track down the libraries needed for CUPS support.
It turns out that you just need to copy over these additional libraries from the F25 system:

/lib/libgnutls.so.30
/lib/libcrypt.so.1

Are you saying that those two libraries are what's needed to get the old Print menu back? I tried that on my F26 system at work, and it didn't make any difference - I still got the "Custom" printer choice only.

For some reason my work machine running F26 needs the fix, while my home F26 system doesn't. I'm going to see what extra packages my home system has compared to my work system.

Re: acroread does not open in F26

Yes, adding these libraries brought back the old print menu. Here is the full list of F25 libraries that I copied over:

libcrypt.so.1
libgnutls.so.30
libXt.so.6
libICE.so.6
libuuid.so.1
libpthread.so.0
libmount.so.1
libexpat.so.1
libdl.so.2
libc.so.6
libblkid.so.1
ld-linux.so.2

If you have all of these libraries in /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib
and it still doesn't work try
export ACRO_PRINT_DEBUG=1
Opening up the print dialog in acroread should help you diagnose what else is missing.

Re: acroread does not open in F26

I looked again at the Print menu on my work F26 system, and though the "Custom" button was still there, it showed two more entries when actually pressing the button:"laserjet" and "laserjet2". I picked "laserjet" and then the normal printer settings appeared (e.g. Properties). So all appears well now, with just those two new libraries installed.

Re: acroread does not open in F26

I had the same problem, but after updating today (dnf update, on August 21st), things worked flawlessly.

Re: acroread does not open in F26

Interesting. The F26 update for today (Aug 21) had new i686 (32-bit) versions of glibc and libcrypt-nss. Either one or both of those likely fixed the problem.

There is a bugzilla report for this issue, and the last comment (#7) says the onus is on Adobe to update Acrobat Reader, but it looks like it was Fedora that (quietly?) fixed the problem.

Re: acroread does not open in F26

Fortunate that the commenter isn't responsible for the Fedora libraries concerned then
